    Tattoos, love 'em or hate 'em?

    What do you think about tattoos? They used to be just for bikers and military vets but now I think there is a law requiring everyone over the age of 10 to get one.
    To each his own I guess but I'm not really a big fan, I can't think of anything that I would want to look at for the rest of my life. and when I see a pretty girl with a big ole tattoo it turns me off almost as much as her smoking a cigarette.

    I love my tattoos (and I also smoke, but it doesn't matter because I'm taken anyway ).

    I have no opinion on other peoples' tattoos, unless they're either really pretty or really ugly.

    Didn't this train stop in the station a few years ago?

    Buckle up.

    I love my tattoo. I've had mine for about 5 years. I got it the year after my sister died - it was in honor of her that I got it.

    I don't care either way; except for some of those guys you see on Lockup, who have them all over their faces. I guess they don't plan on getting much of a job when they're done serving their life sentences. ;)

    When I see a particularly pretty sleeve on some young thing, I always wonder what it'll look like at age 58.

    I think the tattoo thing takes away from military tattoos. Back in the day, that was a mark of bravery. Today, I think, so many people are so lost that they have to brand their body to stand out. I, actually, would like to see tattoos that can be covered (and one can have a chance at getting a real job); the ridiculous piercings of the face and lips is another story/thread. How do those people even kiss anyone anymore? Do they understand it looks hideous? Just wondering. Also, aren't tattoos physically harmful, as far as getting pricked with a needle and ink, and all?

    Tattoos in general have been around for literally thousands of years and were not solely dedicated to military members.

    Times are-a-changin' and as someone who could care less what other people do to their body, and as someone with a "real" job with tattoos that can't be covered and a big beard, maybe it's time we move past the idea that someone's looks dictate how they should be treated or viewed?
